  1. Thread pitch was indeed 1.0. Thank you very much for the help. I was able to clean up the threads and get the nut started and just tightened it slowly. Bike is all back together now.
  2. Well I ordered a set of thread files and they should be here by Tuesday. I’m going to order a extra countershaft nut too just in case. Will update my progress then.
  3. Do you happen to know the thread pitch by chance? Thanks
  4. Thanks for your reply. Yes I do have a new countershaft nut, but when I went to thread it back on it bound up so I stopped and backed it off so I didn’t hurt the threads on the nut. I thought by taking the old nut off that it would clean up the threads but the nut is a very soft metal so I don’t think it did much in the way of cleaning up the damaged threads. If I can find out the thread size and pitch of the countershaftI can get a die or a thread file and go to work on the threads but I can’t find the size.
  5. While taking off the front sprocket nut I screwed up some of the threads on the countershaft trying to bend out the two stalked tabs. So now I need to find a die or a thread file to clean up the threads. I need to know the thread size and pitch of the counter shaft. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I’m really just dejected about the whole dang thing. I’m supposed to be leaving on the 10th for a 6 day trip up thru Northern California along the coast and don’t want to have to cancel it. Taking time off work this week to get the problem fixed is a no go which is adding to my stress. Thanks guys.
  6. Yes I took it for out for 180 mile ride and it was definitely louder. I rode with and without ear plugs as a test and sounded louder for sure. The bike did seem to run smoother in the higher rpms and was a little more peppy at higher speeds. I’ll probably just fill one or two holes at time till I feel like I can find the balance of peppy and not stupid loud.
  7. Well I drilled 10 3/16 size holes in my baffle and it definitely is louder. So my question is would JB weld hold up to the heat if I wanted to fill a few holes?
  8. Me too. I just installed a set of givi crash bars for highway pegs but not sure what people are running.
  9. I drilled out my baffle and it seemed to smooth out the throttle as well.
  10. Plus 1 for the scorpion as well, I love mine.
  11. Not motorcycle related but I like to watch Cleetus McFarland on the YouTube, he actually just bought a abandoned race track in Florida and will be producing some really awesome content this year. Old Cleetus is kinda a goofball but his Chanel is always super positive. He made his name and channel with his twin turbo corvette named Leroy and his love of all things Dale Earnhardt. I also like FTA (forty times around) adventures, this dude quit his job sold all his stuff and is full time traveling on his motorcycle. The channel cover gear reviews, camping gear, apps related free camping and some really cool riding and scenery type stuff. two wheel obsession is good as well, lots of great maintenance info on his channel.
  12. If you had to guess, what size drill bit do you think you used?
  13. I have the carbon version and yes it’s deeper, not louder that’s what I liked about this exhaust. Looks like I will be drilling out my baffle as well and see what I notice.
  14. Did you notice any change in the way your bike sounds? Did it get louder?
